My wife and our 13yr old son traveled from the USA and enjoyed a wonderful week with Claudio, Sabine and Claudio's father Peter, who were absolutely delightful hosts. The Villa's location is perfect for day trips to Florence, Siena, San Gimignano and Certaldo, Pisa etc. The Villa overlooks the city of Florence, and the cabena by the pool provided a perfect way to relax after our daily excursions. The local pizzeria in the local village of San Martino alla Palma is excellent and in easy walking distance from the Villa. I'd also reccommentd the steak Florentina at Fiore's (about 10 mins by car). Best way to get to Florence is by train, not exspensive and runns every 5 mins or so from Scandicci, also about 10 mins by car. Although there is a bus stop right outside the Villa, we didn't use it and would reccomend a car. Thank you for being part of our memorable vacation.
